Window to Spring


I die cut Penny Black’s “In The Garden” out of black and placed it on a piece of Alcohol inked Yupo. Then cut a Memory Box Grand Madison Window, popped it up on dimensional adhesive and placed on black card. The greeting is from Penny Black’s Edge to Edge sentiment set

Watercolor on Yupo


Distress inks spritzed with water on Penny Black’s Gentle Whisper stamp on Yupo. Die cut greeting from Quietfire Designs

Northern Lights on Yupo


Alcohol inks on Yupo for the sky. Buildings cut from Tailored Expression Downtown border which I put on Stampin up window sheets and used my Chameleon markers to color the windows for the illusion of lights. Background buildings are Memory Box Cityscape Silhouette, both cut on the big shot. Greeting is a Hero Arts one

Serenity quote from Quietfire Designs


Heat embossed with silver, although it looks gold in the photo, I love this quote

Still using every scrap of Alcohol inked Yupo!

Acrylic paints on Yupo


With this card, I tried fluid acrylic paints and a paintbrush on Yupo. It does give intense colors but I do prefer the unpredictability of the alcohol inks on Yupo . I used the Grand Gothic arch die  from Memory Box to mimic a stained glass window, and With Sympathy stamp from Quietfire

Maribelle Butterfly

Using Memory Box dies today. First the Valencia Border on an alcohol inked Yupo piece. Paired with the Maribelle Butterfly Die Cut twice and put on Stampin Up’s window sheets and stacked together. Greeting by Quietfire Designs

Treasured Memories


Still playing with Yupo paper and alcohol inks. Used Stampin Up’s Rose Garden thinlet die on black and placed over the Yupo. Greeting is from Quietfire Designs and is one of my most used stamps for sympathy cards as I can use it either on the outside or inside of a sympathy card.
